HOPE COMES HOME
Sarasota Memorial is bringing comprehensive cancer care to our community so you don’t have to choose between the best cancer care and the life you love.
The Healthcare Foundation has launched an ambitious fundraising campaign, Leading with Care, to help SMH realize its full vision of bringing world-class cancer care to our region.
Gifts to the campaign will contribute $75 million to help establish the Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute and its comprehensive care programs. The first phase of construction has been completed. The Radiation Oncology Center at University Parkway opened in August 2020. The Oncology Tower on the hospital’s main campus is scheduled to open in late 2021, with an outpatient Cancer Pavilion in preliminary planning phases.
There are many ways to make a meaningful donation to support the Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute. Perhaps you would like to make a gift in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone who cared for you during your treatment at SMH. Whether you choose to make a cash donation or leave a legacy gift through your estate or will, your gift, no matter the size, will help SMH complete the first crucial phases of the Jellison Cancer Institute.
To learn more about ways to give, available naming opportunities, or legacy gifts, please contact the Healthcare Foundation at 941-917-1286

The Cancer Institute will ease the patient and family burden at every level; removing travel from the equation, offering total cancer care in a health care system that’s also prepared to treat any co-occurring illnesses.
We want to provide true cancer care, not just cancer treatment. We hope, you believe as we do, that the best cancer care is here, close to your loved ones, close to your physicians, and close to home.

Community support is absolutely essential in making the hospital’s vision of a destination cancer center in Sarasota a reality.
When you love something and are so passionate about it, it’s easy to support. If we don’t support the community, we’re going to lose an amazing opportunity to have something we’ve never had here before.

Back in 2003, when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, I went on Google and got all the information I could and ended up far more confused than I was before I logged on. There was way too much information, and I didn’t have a way to process all that or have context for it.
It will be much easier for people in Sarasota who have cancer to go there, rather than having to travel to a cancer center farther away.
